Lowell Ego Digital Imaging Fluorescent Light Unit I quickly learned from the Tasty Food Photography ebook about the importance of good lighting for food photos. Alas, as I write this page in the waning days of November, there’s not any nature light to be had come dinner time. This light unit helps us still manage to still get some tasty photos taken when the sun has set.
Tasty Food Photography ebook created by Lindsay from Pinch of Yum was a huge step in improving our photos here at Cooking Chat, and thus features prominently on this food blogger resources page. Well worth the $19 for us! Using the book as a guide, we took the plunge on a “real” camera (will add some more about that later) and other tools. Since doing so, we’ve been getting accepted to the highly selective food photo sites with some regularity–see for instance our Tastespotting gallery. More important, the photos look so tasty–don’t you just want a bite of that Turkey and Butternut Squash stew to the right? There is also a new resource available on taking food photos with artificial lighting available through Food Blogger Pro.
